Oral morphine can : Vary in absorption, so it can effect duration of peak effect. We dose it every 4 hrs. It is usable by feeding tube, but fentanyl can be more steady dosed every 3 days. Long acting "continn" need insurance and a usable oral route.

Variable: The half life is 3-5 hours. It will be detactable in your system for 24 hours. The metabolite is detectable longer.
